I just moved to Indiana and was quick to look for Three Floyds offerings. I had this on tap at Scottyís in West Lafayette, and bought some bottles from a local store as well. Pours deep amber with a thin head and minimal lacing. Great aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Aroma is consistent with flavor. Nice hops and great malt present. The solid malty flavor is great in a pale ale. Medium bodied and a little bit of lingering bitterness finishes it off. Itís low on carbonation and has a simple, solid feel to it. This is definitely one of the best pale ales Iíve had. This has all the elements of a great pale ale.

Poured from bottle into shaker. Brownish orangish color with thin white head. Scent is citrus and sweet malt. Taste is good balance of sweet malt and cirusy hops, with mild very pleasant bitterness. Smooth feel. Great beer.

This one never fails to satisfy me. It's bold, so I don't think I could down too many in one sitting. But it bursts with FLAVOR! ---Rated via Beer Buddy

A great pale ale. Someone once said to me they did not like pale ales because they all taste the same. He needs to get out more.

An exceptional pale ale. Aroma is of hops straight off the vine. Goes down easy with strong orange hoppiness. Would recommend to any pale ale lover. A bit hazy, but has good head retention at higher temps.

Draft at the FFF Brewpub. I love this beer out of the bottle, but on draft it is so much better!!! Well balanced, nice malty sweetness and fruity hop spice. LOVE IT!!!!

Amber malts hit the nose paired with some Citrus hops. Mouthfeel is adequate but the balance is great. Malts are loud but the hops keep up. Finish goes on a hoppy journey from earthy to citrus with a finish of grassy/piney. Really fun!! ---That dog will hunt!

I'm not sure this one lived up to its high rating, although it was a very tasty beer. Deep amber color with a malty start that was quickly overpowered by strong hop flavor.

Bottle: An amber pour with a nice head, lasted for a while on my 2nd bottle. i think I may have mispoured the first. Extremely hoppy... a savoured flavour. A top 3 APA Iíve had, if not THE best.
